A Walk on the Lower East Side

  Past the House of Sages 
       Past the Arab owned 
bodega
   past the Spanish people playing dominoes 
        Towards my home
  on the Lower East Side
   We on the Lower East Side 
are spending our lives 
    in the asphalt homelaqnd
while we make love
    to the urban landscape
